Yeah it will grow on ya! Go to www.dslreports.com and you can test your cable line to see how fast it is. Go to dlsr tools then click on speed test.

Mine is about 116 times faster the a 56K. Eat that!:D :D
You can also go to the tweaks section of that web page and possibly make it run even faster. Especially if you have Windows 98.

I used to have cable in my last apt, but in the one I live in now we're still using dial up :(.

Still stuck @ 56k! :barf: :crying: :mad: .

I live in a rural area and my only other choice would be that Direct PC garbage. :finger: No thanks.....way too pricey for what it's worth, and I still need a dial-up account!?:mad: :confused:

There's a small company around here that's trying to get a microwave broadband system off the ground, but they say the response from residents hasn't exactly been overwhelming. One can hope though...

I know exactly what you are saying bro... I was stuck with 56K forever because they had to drill a few holes in a couple of cows to run the fiber lines for the cable in my area ;) :D

I am 1/2 mile out of DSL range with "no immediate plans for expansion" and cable is friggin' expensive here.

Hey Sisqo,
I was just curious whether or not you realized this thread is 2.5 years old when you replied?

Yes sweetie, I did realize that. I thought it was funny that I had the same problem as Chris about a year and a half back, you know, living in the sticks and everything:D Thanks for the heads up Prax:thumb:

Hey, maybe I can brighten the day a bit. I'm studying wireless for my graduate degree, and broadband access delivered via radio signals from products such as Motorola Canopy are growing quickly. The solution's ideally suited for flat land with people in medium density farmland. I assume that was what the other poster was referring to with "microwaves".

Perhaps you'd be interested in a business opportunity? I've been considering doing this myself here in Indiana or up near my in-laws, where wind farms are growing in popularity.

Just some thoughts :2cents:
